At last, we have some more snow. Not much mind, just a dusting really but it started falling early this morning and hopefully it will continue over the next few days and into next week. Different forecasts seem to differ on what to expect, so I'll just sit back and see what happens I think.
Keep an eye on the resort pages of SnowJapan for a 6 day forecast that is updated multiple times daily, here's the page for Grand Hirafu for example:

Niseko Grand Hirafu weather page

Will have to wrap up well, because it has got real cold all of a sudden - well, certainly compared with the last week or so!

We obviously need a nice big delivery of snow to get the ski lifts into action.

Let's see what I can report to you tomorrow morning!
